The pictures can't fully illustrate the beauty and spaciousness of this condo. The size and layout easily accommodated our family of 4 (with room to spare) and the decor was elegant and tasteful. The condo was equip with more than just the necessities - full size washer & dryer, first aid kit, board games, DVD's, beach towels and beach toys. In addition to the beautiful pool on site, we had access to the hotel's concierge services, butterfly pavilion, and other amenities.
The views from the large balcony of the ocean, beach and wildlife were truly amazing. Every day we were dazzled by the macaws, monkeys, birds and reptiles that lingered naturally in full view of our outdoor dining table and lounge areas. Watching the sun set with a glass of wine topped each day of adventure.
The beach itself is gorgeous and the surrounding area has a lot to offer such as a full restaurant, clean bathrooms and activities such as snorkeling, paddle boarding and boogie board rentals. 2 lifeguards keep a watchful eye.
The weather was perfect most of the week. It was warm and on the humid side and since this is considered the "Green Season" we were not surprised when we had rain in the afternoon on one day and a quick shower on another. Don't believe the forecast online before you go! It's sunny and beautiful in June!
We did many of the activities recommended by Guy: Carara National Park, viewed crocodiles at the Tarcoles Bridge, Vista Los Suenos zip line tour and watched the sun set from Villa Caletas. In addition, we took an ATV tour, a Waterfall tour and spent time at the beach. So much to do!!
The owner, Guy, was fantastic. He kept in contact before, during and after our stay. Prior to our arrival, he provided us with an information packet and all the necessary details we needed to get to the condo (rental car info, currency, location of grocery store, etc). Once we arrived, he had someone there to greet us who provide us with a cell phone for our use during our stay. Guy called the first night to check in and then emailed us the next day with additional advice on where to dine within 30 minutes, great places to see the sunset and the location of the large grocery store. He was so accommodating and has thought of everything!
This was by far our best vacation - full of wonder and adventure. We will definitely come again!
